Pasqualino at the Colosseum

Pasqualino is one of the oldest restaurants in Rome , located right next to the colosseum as luck would have it. It’s original owners are no longer, although they still play a significant part in its running choosing the wines served to the tables and oils used in the kitchen.

Here one can expect to be served the best that local tradition can offer today, from La Amatriciana to the Carbonara. Washed down with copious amounts of wine from the local hills of the Castelli Romani, makes pasqualino part of a short list when choosing somewhere to eat near the colosseum.

Wholeheartely supported by the Red Bicycle who have a bike shop plus tours down the road from this restaurant .

About the author

Originally from South Africa, I moved to Italy in 2007 after having finished school in England. My grasp of the Italian language was basic but enough to get to know people. By the end of 2008 I had mastered an intermediate level of italian and would continue to progress onto higher levels. Today my proficiency of the italian language is enough to fool some italians into thinking I'm one of them! Although I never manage to be as charming... My other interests besides Italy, the Italians and the Italian way of life are: Cycling, Languages and Travel. At the moment I am heavily involved with the day-to-day running of The Red Bike Shop and am a keen cyclist, taking part in races and especially Grandfondos (one-off races). My goal for the future is to open a fully functional bike shop in the center of Rome.
